Update 2: It's 5:30 pm now, I posted last this morning. I'm going to go buy some live bloodworms for him now from across the street. OFL said I need to make everything as natural and stress free as possible so I steeped some IAL and I'm feeding live for awhile. I'm doing 25-50% water changes like I did in the morning, everyday to twice a day to get his system into shape. He's swimming around a lot more now and without much difficulty. Not like yesterday or in the morning, when he just sat in one place. Pics to come soon to compare popeye size from yesterday :)

He's doing much better, this is yesterday's update:
He was very lethargic in the morning, I realised this was because of the heater being at 86! I quickly did a 25% water change with cool water, which seemed to perk him up. He's been very alert and responsive today, he comes up to the glass out of curiosity, when I come to check on him but quickly hides. :)
He's been swimming around today and doesn't sit around for long periods. He also gobbled up 4 live bloodworms quite happily in the evening. He's actually blown a few bubbles too! I changed 25% of his water in the evening as well.
Although the raw pink and red have not gone from his body, he seems to be developing a nice green colour on him which was there only at his tail before. Now it is halfway up his body.. I'll put up some pics for you tomorrow. His "lumpy" scales really bother me though, they don't look raised but like bumps. I wonder if its because of the burns?
Anyway, I hope he continues in this trend and gets healthy.

Lol! You're only the 2nd person to say that so far.. Tisia being the first. His face looks like he's thinking "omg what?"

Looking at the pic again of him, I'm thinking if it's not a tumor it may be necrotic tissue or just really infected. If so, I think what your doing should and will hopefully be enough to help get him back to health, unless he takes a turn for the worst. Like any new little guy, you never know what you're gonna get. From there you just take one step at a time. ^_^

Yeah, I guess! He's doing so well now, I really hope he keeps getting better, it would be sad if he gets worse. I have no idea what it is but I have a feeling that it must be some kind of infection because when I look at it closely it has some green iridescence to it, hopefully it's just swollen and will go down eventually...
